Two Uber Executives to Face Trial in France

Two executives from California-based Uber will face trial in France on Sept. 30, the Paris public prosecutor said, part of a French crackdown on what the government calls an illegal taxi service. Thibaud Simphal, manager of Uber France, and Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty, general manager for western Europe, were detained by police in an investigation that earlier led to Uber's offices being raided by police in March.
